31 This page intentionally left blank Chapter 2 The Domestic Frontiersman and the Vital Center W hile many TV westerns of the 1950s encapsulated cthe tendency toward a sense of moderation, centrism, and civility, with recourse to violence always at the ready, The Rifleman remains the key exemplar. The western loner has long been characterized as a watchful, slow-to-react man whose wisdom complements his physical skills, but Chuck Connors’s Lucas McCain reconfigures the westerner very much as an embodiment of 1950s culture.

Throughout the show’s run, The Rifleman was adept at keeping these qualities in plausible balance. In the early episode “The Sheridan Story,” Lucas, a Union veteran of the Civil War, becomes another of the western’s symbols of the war’s centrality to nineteenth-century America (this important and recurrent backstory is rather undeveloped, perhaps because the extreme divisiveness symbolized by the Civil War runs against the show’s centrism). In The Rifleman, as in many movie and TV westerns of the era, the Civil War was not yet portrayed as a catastrophe with devastating consequences for the United States, as it would be in Shenandoah (1965) and The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976).

Lucas meanwhile turns his scrap revolver into a rifle by rigging a piece of board as a stock and a twig as a rear sight. He kills a bewildered Cotton with two quick shots. The dying Cotton hands Lucas his rifle. Lucas, with typically gentle paternalism, touches the head of the youthful outlaw. The obvious lesson is that Lucas’s superiority does not come from weapons alone, or even his special understanding of them, but from his goodness, endurance, and moral superiority, each attribute reinforcing the others.
